The Mets need to fire someone after their less than impressive start to the season, and hitting coach Chilli Davis was one of the first to get the boot. Tim Britton of The Athletic tweeted the news after their Monday night loss.
Franciso Lindor is ICE COLD at the plate and the other bats haven’t been performing up to what the team envisioned. They are dead last in the entire league in runs scored, hits, and home runs.
Luckily for the Mets, their division has a whole as underperformed and they are only a half game out of first place. Their pitching has been stellar and Jacob deGrom has led the charge, but per usual he gets NO run support and he gets his gems wasted.
If the Mets didn’t get bailed out by the review in Sunday Night Baseball, Luis Rojas would have have probably been the one fired. He used Edwin Diaz in a non save situation which resulted in their “star closer” run off the mound and faking an injury.
After a Monday night loss to the Cardinals Davis and Tom Slater, the other hitting coach were fired while Lindor has not gotten a hit on over 20 plate appearances. General Manager Zack Taylor said this was a difficult decision, but something that had to be done.
“We felt like it was decision based on what we want out Major League hitting program to be. I am not going to dive too deep into that… but the process under the hood that is going on that’s important, not about results.”Zack Taylor
I mean that is just flat out wrong but we can all ignore that. It is about results, we want the results, so it should be about THE RESULTS. You can’t be the worst offensive team in the league and win the World Series. It’s impossible, and this pitching staff (and bullpen to an extent) have proven that they are capable of winning it all.
